Rev. Ben Meyers, minister of the Unitarian Universalists of San Mateo (UUSM), announced today that UUSM members will stand in solidarity for peace, sustainability and social justice on Inauguration Day, January 20th. He invited the greater Peninsula community to join in a peaceful protest from noon – 1 p.m. along the El Camino Real (ECR) from San Francisco to San Jose. “If you too are concerned about the rhetoric and proposed policies of the incoming administration,” Rev. Meyers said, “you are encouraged to come out and show that as a community we will stand our ground and fight for tolerance, decency, economic justice and democracy in our country.”
Protesters are invited to come individually or in groups and to carry their organization’s banner or signs indicating their primary concerns. “Be direct,” counsels Rev. Meyers,
“but PLEASE, no hateful or violent language. Don’t block driveways, doorways, street crossings or traffic. We will gather at noon and disperse peacefully and promptly at 1 p.m.” Further details at ECR Protest. There’s a Group page set up so that you can meet-up with others near you. Ask to join or message Jamie’s personal FB G J Dedes.
